The third-quarter will likely reveal upticks in delinquency and charge-off metrics, but yields should remain around the record levels of the past two quarters, notes Robert McKinley, Senior Analyst for CardFlash, CardData and CardTrak.
Also of note: U.S. credit card debt unraveled in August as Americans knocked-off $2 billion in new revolving consumer debt, mostly credit card debt. After adding $15 billion in new credit card debt this year, mostly between April and July. The decline dovetails with the recent sharp declines in U.S. consumer confidence.
U.S. revolving credit, (97% credit card debt), decreased in August, at an annual rate of 2.2%, compared to one-year ago, and follows a revised 10.5% YOY (year-on-year) surge in July and a revised decline of 0.8% in June.
