IMF approves €657 million bailout tranche for Portugal
The International Monetary Fund (IMF) approved the seventh tranche of Portugal's bailout Wednesday and gave the country more time to meet its budget-cutting goals. The IMF will disburse the next tranche worth €657 million after the successful review of a bailout program that started in 2011. Meanwhile, the fund eased conditions, allowing Portugal to lower its budget deficit to 3% of GDP by 2015 from 6.4% in 2012, instead of by 2014. "The Portuguese authorities have put forward a program that is economically well-balanced and has growth and job creation at its center", IMF acting Managing Director John Lipsky wrote in a statement.

USD/CAD, sustained weakness below 1.0170/75 needed – TDS
MARKET ANALYSIS – Intraday Analysis
Upwards scenario: Uptrend evolvement remains in power. Further appreciation above the resistive barrier at 1.3371 (R1) is compulsory to commence positive market structure and validate next intraday targets at 1.3395 (R2) and 1.3418 (R3). Downwards scenario: Any downside fluctuations remains for now limited to the key support barrier at 1.3335 (S1). Only clear break here would be a signal of possible market easing towards to our targets at 1.3311 (S2) and 1.3288 (S3) in potential.
Resistance Levels: 1.3371, 1.3395, 1.3418
Support Levels: 1.3335, 1.3311, 1.3288

Upwards scenario: market looks overbought and possibility of retracement is high. Though loss of the next resistive barrier at 1.5706 (R1) might push the price towards to our targets at 1.5733 (R2) and 1.5761 (R3) later on today. Downwards scenario: We placed our support level right above the Monday high at 1.5654 (S1). Clearance here is required to open way towards to our interim target at 1.5626 (S2) and then final aim locates at 1.5598 (S3).
Resistance Levels: 1.5706, 1.5733, 1.5761
Support Levels: 1.5654, 1.5626, 1.5598
Upwards scenario: Medium term bias is clearly negative on USDJPY however we expect see some recovery action later on today. Key resistive bastion lies at 95.12 (R1). If the price manages to break it, we would suggest next targets at 95.67 (R2) and 96.21 (R3). Downwards scenario: Risk of price depreciation is seen below the support level at 93.90 (S1). A fall below it might prolong the weakness towards to next target at 93.40 (S2) and any further market decline would then be limited to final support at 92.91 (S3).
Resistance Levels: 95.12, 95.67, 96.21
Support Levels: 93.90, 93.40, 92.91
