Market Outlook In Canada, debt is running at 170% of income with investors. The US is only about 110%. This high household debt level does not leave much room for a family to absorb interest rate hikes. Unless Canadian start earning a lot more in income, he thinks there could be more defaults ahead.

Now another correction is likely coming.
