Don't follow just non-fico scores, follow your fico scores too, they are much less screwy than non-fico scoring systems and they mean more as well as most lenders use a version of FICO in their lending decisions.

Regardless of the scoring model when a new account is open, for many reasons, your score may move up or down or not at all. If you have opened a few new accounts it will go slightly lower because you are lowering your AAoA (Average Age of Accounts)
