Why did my credit score decrease significantly?
I recently financed a vehicle and opened a new credit card about a month after. My credit score dropped 52 points about a month later. When i used the credit simulator to simulate the same activity (2 hard inquiries, adding a credit card and adding an auto loan) the score only changed by 11 points. Why did my score drop so significantly?
