Norwegian Cruise Line Holdings Ltd (NYSE: NCLH) stock price has fallen 9.78% from its September highs, and most investors are wondering when the trend will reverse?

Luckily, investors might not have to wait long if the picture painted by NCLH’s stock price chart plays out as expected.

According to the cruise operators’ daily chart below, its shares are trading at the 50-day EMA line, which could trigger the next rally phase.

NCLH stock is also trading above a crucial support level that has been tested in the past and held both as support and resistance. 

Therefore, there is a strong likelihood that the support level shall hold this time around.

On the fundamental front, Norwegian Cruise Lines has experienced strong demand amid a surge in bookings due to the pent-up demand created by the coronavirus pandemic lockdowns.

Like its peer Carnival cruises, NCLH intends to have its entire fleet operational by April 2022.

As more countries vaccinate a large proportion of their populations, they are more likely to lift all the restrictions affecting the cruise ship industry, fueling further demand for the company’s voyages.

The cruise ship operator has a fleet of 28 ships and plans to add nine more ships to its fleet by 2027, resulting in higher revenues and profits going forward.

However, investors are concerned about the company’s massive debt accumulated during the coronavirus lockdown period to keep its operations afloat.

Investors looking for exposure to the industry could buy at current levels with the expectation of riding the potential rally. However, a break below the support level would invalidate the bullish thesis.
