I closed my first secure $500 credit card, not knowing that it is not recommended to do so.
I have only 11 months of credit history and only one credit card with $500 limit (not secure). How do I know when it is the right time to apply for a new one? Also, not knowingly, I closed my first secured $500 credit card after a year. How did it affect my credit score?
