how much did it fall?

if you asked for the increase, there is an added inquiry (maybe about 5 point difference)

if the overall utilization wasn't really affected by the change then it wouldn't reflect in your score.

When ever there is activity

My score seems to fall....  But it always comes back and usually better.  Seems that when ever there is an increase or new line of credit, the CRA's want to watch how you react to it,  If you go all hog wild or not,       Continue on...

 Shifts and changes of 25 to 50 points happen every month and make no differance to your score in the long run. 

Unless your taking out a mortgage in the next day or two, it will not make any diffeance, so why sweat it?  Just remember to get your duck s in a row when YOU decide that you need a new line of credit.

Good Luck
