    The spread on the Canadian yield curve is down to 23.7bp.
    A negative yield curve is often precursor to a bear market, but not always.
    All bear markets since 1900, except for one have started with a neg yield curve.
    It can take from 6mths to 18mths to kick in after the yield curve reverses.
