Question though, are you sure it was 8.4% (aggregate, I think you just had the one loan?) on that pull?  In my own experience that reason code has gone away at least for FICO 8 under 8.9%.  If TU FICO 4 is different that's interesting

Yes. The remaining balance was exactly $42.35 (42.35/500 = 8.47%), and myFICO's front-end software takes the floor of that value (and floor of percentage) to display the following:

These are partial FICO 8 factors from the same (12/31/18) report: (yet another glaring error there in the front-end software...8% of principal...should be 92%)

Sadly all the “positives” are just CMS fluff.

That’s worst than yet another presentation gaff Smiley Wink.

Appreciate the confirmation though, wonder if you had gotten it below 5% if it would have gone away entirely like it does on FICO 8 under 9%.

No doubt about it.  Everyone, put your hands together for CMS fluff.
