It fell 1.7% last night to the lowest level in 3.5 years, as noted by Bloomberg’s Sara Eisen.

And of course it’s the worst performing since the crisis.

Again, see this table from Doug Short, and note the blue line at the bottom (which is only through last Friday, and doesn’t include today’s ugly action).
