The Fed reported a seasonally adjusted annual rate of 4.75 percent. Revolving credit increased at an annual rate of 1 percent, while non-revolving credit increased at an annual rate of 6.5 percent.
Non-revolving credit, which includes student and auto loans, rose to $1.970 trillion, up $10.38 billion, on a seasonally adjusted basis, The Wall Street Journal reported.
