Mr Assange has been holed up in the Ecuadorian embassy in London since he took refuge there in June 2012 to avoid extradition to Sweden.
But senior district judge and chief magistrate Emma Arbuthnot has told Westminster Magistrates' Court that she is "not persuaded that the warrant should be withdrawn".
Assange has denied the allegations of sexual misconduct in Sweden - he claimed the sex was consensual - but he has long argued that there is an global effort led by Washington to persecute him for his role in the publication of hundreds of thousands of classified USA government documents, diplomatic cables and emails.

His lawyer Jennifer Robinson said in a statement: "We must confront the real issue in this case - if Julian Assange walks out of the embassy today, he risks facing extradition to the U.S.to face prosecution for publishing information in the public interest with Wikileaks".
There are no formal charges in against Assange in the USA, though news reports past year suggested the Justice Department was looking into it.
