The heat is on at Citigroup; it's time for the big bank to pay the piper, as others have done, as the company looks to get out from under regulators set to hit it with a multi-billion dollar tab stemming from how Citigroup handled its mortgage practices.

Today's Chart of the Day could fall even further if the market prices in a bigger tab.
