TORONTO Aug 31 (Reuters) - Canadian stocks turned negative on Friday after a speech from U.S. Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke did not explicitly signal any imminent monetary easing.

At 10:10 a.m. (1410 GMT) the Toronto Stock Exchange's S&P/TSX composite index was down 11.82 points, or 0.1 percent, at 11,875.22. It had traded as high as 11,959.82 in anticipation of Bernanke's speech.
