Consumer credit data points to end of housing downturn.

Consumer credit data suggests spending will increase and the housing market will begin to emerge from its slump this year, according to Equifax and Moody’s Analytics. Both companies note that as key market data align with pre-recession totals, consumers should anticipate steady economic growth for major credit sectors. Looking across the full spectrum of consumer credit, Equifax and Moody’s found that delinquency rates for
auto, bankcard, and consumer finance are back to pre-recession levels.
