Credit Card was transferred from one bank to another appears as closed
I had a credit card in HSBC. It was the 1st credit card that I ever had, so it was the oldest in my credit report.

HSBC was bought by First Niagara bank where I live, so my credit card transferred to First Niagara.

My problem is that the HSBC credit card was the oldest credit account I had and now it appears as closed and the new First Niagara credit card appears as a new account and this led to a dip in my credit history.

Is there anything that I can do regarding this issue?
