The Federal Reserve Bank just reported the Consumer Loan Charge-off Rate (CLCOR) for the fourth quarter of 2022. According to the data published back in Nov 2022, the total seasonally adjusted CLCOR figure for 2022Q3 was 1.28%, above 2022Q2 level at 1.10%. Since 2021Q3, the historic bottom of the series, the CLCOR has been increasing. Our forecast before the recent published data predicted another step in the increasing trend at 1.33%. The new published data for CLCOR at 2022Q4 is 1.65% which is 25 percent higher than its previous quarter.

Below, you can see the performance of our predictions against the actual values since 2015Q4 that we started predicting CLCOR on a regular basis.
