Tell me if this Makes sense

So one of my cc went from 4% to 11% utilization rate by forgetting to pay the extra amount. My score went down 2 points.......which I understand since under 9% is the best.....

But.....I paid it back down to 4%, and my score only went up 1 point...what happened to the other point? It's right back where it was before......

Please any help would help....lol

1 point is such a tiny amount. It barely even counts as noise.

 

There was probably another factor involved.

Typical score climb. 2 steps forward 1 step back.  Credit scores are roller coasters. If you micro manage them , they will drive you insane.

 

I only record scores every month to avoid those little fluctuations (Fico noise), and they still bounce around quit a bit.

 

edit: added fresh chart
