There you go. Your FICO score drop was caused by the following 3 events:

 

A lowered AAoA

A higher number of accounts that show a balance

A higher percentage of accounts that show a balance

 

The latter 2 are the ones you forgot to account for :smileywink:

 


besides that Fico scoring and logical reasoning does not compute..... my account shows a $4 balance from Bank of America from $0 and my score jumps up 24 points..... Trying to understand Fico scoring 100% is like trying to understand a woman. You can try, but it'll never fully happen.

Were you having zero card reporting a balance prior to that? Having  one credit card balance is better than having no balance at all.

I had multiple accounts reporting about 5 cards reporting a balance at the time. Total was only about $1,500 between 5 cards / 100k+ limits.

 

Like I said I understand Fico scoring and obsessed over credit more than most people, even on forums I would place myself at the top 1% of obsessed people lol, and Fico scoring is always kinda strange. Especially on the reasons they give you.

Ahh - That makes perfect sense: A new account changes the whole scoring equation - Thanks, HiLine !!
