I recognize the chart. The chart is from plugging in numbers and profiles to the FICO score estimator model (on this site) but was put together on another Board which Shall Not Be Named.*

If the poster were to go to the thread and look at what distantarray wrote, the neame of the chart author could be seen. A bit of google-fu would lead you to the board where said author hangs out.

My sweet spot for the most possible points seems to be only 1 card with a balance, utilization total of 2 to 3 percent, and it drops from there. The chart posted here by distantarray shows utilization tiers of different reports. These are actual numbers sampled from real credit reports, and for all of them the sweet spot is somewhere under 10%.
I have been looking for this chart since I first stumbled upon it last year. Thank you for bringing it back!!!
