    Re: retrosopective / prospective

    For the first sentence, I have no idea what "retrospective aspects" are so I'm leaving that part how it is. However, the rest of the sentence needs work:

    Stock analysts are advising that stock traders buy and sell based on ...

    For the second, I suggest "Due to a slump in oil sales, prospective earnings from oil stocks have a huge question mark over them". However, I'm not sure if that was the intended meaning.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Re: retrosopective / prospective

    Stocks are usually being analysed based on the market terms of "moving average", "Stock chart" (Monthly,Half yearly,Yearly) etc. I want to say "Stocks are being analysed based on statistics". Will it (retrospective) work here?
