Score went down with no hard inquiries
I was approved for a new credit card recently for JCPenney. BROUGHT me up to having 6 accounts open. There were no hard inquiries opened. So I think my average credit lifetime went down a couple months but sTaye in the same "scoring" window as before. Now I have more credit available and another credit card gave me more available credit as well.

As I can see only one bad thing happened to my credit score. We're as 3 good things happened. How does my score go down 30 points on both Equifax and Trans?
