SW score fluctuation...confusedi

[ Edited ]

for the past month, my EQ score started at 702 then the following week, up to 707. Then one week later back down to 702. Then last week bumped up again to 707. But then i just got another SW alert saying im back down to 702. The first week, when it went from 704 to 702, i know it was because my util went up to about 40%...but then got it paid down to about 20% so it went back up to 707 when balances was updated on my cr. But since then, ive also noticed that 3 out of 4 of my oldest closed accounts have aged off my report. Aside from those closed accounts dropping off, nothing else has changed on my EQ report. Could I have been rebucketed?...causing my score to go back down to 702? If thats the case...it makes sense. But what would make it go back up to 707 a week later...and then down to 702 again less than a week later? i dont get it because nothing else has changed on my credit profile the last 2 weeks of the fluctuation..

Re: SW score fluctuation...confusedi

You're just going to see those rollercoaster scores for a bit.  There's some fluxuation as things age and changes.  I wouldn't worry about a few points here and there.  Mine does the same thing it seems.


Starting Score: 504

July 2013 score: EQ FICO 819, TU08 778, EX "806 lender pull 07/26/2013
Goal Score: All Scores 760+, Newest goal 800+
