Dear valued readers,

I bittersweetly want to announce an elongated sabbatical of the BenCBanks.com website, with the potential and intention of picking it back up in due time. This decision has come after a considerable amount of thought and some restlessness. The reason for this decision is based on two main things; one, I am becoming older and have different and more responsibilities to attend to at this point. Two, I will not be around a computer screen for the three months of the summer. Instead, I will be in Clearwater Florida with a Christian Ministry sharing the Gospel of Christ (namely that he Loves us enough to die for us, despite our sin against him). As a result of these two things, I will not be able to post or study many charts over the next few months. It is with a heavy heart I announce this, for I will miss this deeply and am will always be thankful for this time in my life.

I want to thank everyone who has helped me over the years. Specifically, all of the readers, StockTwits, SeeItMarket and all of the other various media outlets. I am deeply appreciative of the opportunities you have given me, especially considering my lack of expierence within the finance industry (as a college student). I will never forget this time in my life and all that you have helped me accomplish. I am deeply indebted to your gracious help. Please reach out to me over the next few months, I will get back to you as soon as I can. I may even post an occasional post here and there, but I want to share this mainly so you know what is going on in my personal life as I transition into a new season.

With thanks,

Ben C. Banks

A Sabbatical.
