Anyone know how the $18b mortgage write off at Citi is calculated?
Have they completely written off the asset value of any property that they own the paper to that has been foreclosed upon? Or have they partially written down each loan based on some preceived market value? Or is it more generic, a percentage write down on the total value of the accumulated paper they have in their portfolio?

I think the total exposure was around $55 billion, so they have used some sort of formula to get to the $18b.
