    The FACT for Section 04 is:

    The Average Outstanding
    Balance on a Credit Card
    Card Account.

    Really? A Credit Card Card Account. Is that like an Automated Teller Machine Machine?

      @James Peterson
      Clearly you are a Personal Capital customer or have, at the very least, voluntarily subscribed to receive their communications so why would you use a public forum to point out such a small and inconsequential typo on an infographic that took much thought and effort for another human to create? I never thought I would see a bully or troll on a personal finance blog, how sad. The classy and professional move would have been to contact Marianne or your adviser directly to inform them of the error so they could correct it discreetly. I wish you more love, kindness, and respect for the holidays and new year…

        Great response to an inane comment. My guess is most people, like me, never noticed the typo and for good reason: it didn’t keep anyone’s brain from understanding the point.
