XRP’s price has seen a steady incline over the past fortnight. Since mid-March, the $24.05 billion market-capped asset has noted a swift 32% incline. If the bullish momentum and buy pressure persist, XRP would be able to break past its immediate test levels and head toward creating new local highs.

Investors, at this stage, are in quite a comfortable position. XRP’s Sharpe Ratio has gradually registered an uptick over the past few days, bringing it up to 2.5. Simplistically, this metric helps in gauging the rewards earned by investors against the risk borne.

For context, Ethereum’s Sharpe ratio currently stands at 1.65. On the other hand, for altcoins like Solana and Cardano, the ratio is hovering in the negative territory, around -0.85 and -0.98 respectively.

The higher the ratio, the better, for it indicates that investors are being fetched with significant returns. Thus, XRP seems to have an extra edge over others. In fact, in his tweet, John Deaton went on to acknowledge that XRP’s risk/reward ratio is quite attractive at the moment.
