stop losses??

    Since it is a Sunday I thought I would ask peoples thoughts on stop losses.

    I am currently looking at developing a system to trade/invest in stocks over a 3 to 12 month holding period.

    I am interested in comments on the trailing stops people use once the trade has become positive. NOT the equity risk stop used at entry.

    I guess I have a longer term approach which will look to hold the stock whilst it is in a long term uptrend.

    The offset to this is how much profit is given away before the position is stopped out.

    Any views out there?

    Thanks in advance.
