Why does my credit score fluctuate so intensely?
I have been monitoring my credit score over the past 6 months on a weekly basis because I have been actively reducing my credit card balance. My credit score, however, is really fluctuating up and down. One week it's up 3 points, down 45 points, up 60 points and then this past week it went down 111 points! According to the credit report everything is in good standing and shows no major effects on the score. It seems so unstable, what can be causing this?
