If you are relatively new to investing, it may be difficult to get into an IPO. Brokerages are wary about putting a new investor into something that is seen as suited for investors with more experience.
In looking for a good IPO, you should look at the underlying business of the stock being brought to market. Things that identify a good stock already on the market should appear in a promising IPO as well.
How to obtain shares in an IPO:
1) Open an account with one of the brokerages selling shares in the IPO - When a company conducts an IPO it offers its shares through a "selling group," often made up of a handful of brokerages. These firms will only sell IPO shares to customers. Be aware that you will likely have to sign several forms in addition to the standard account opening forms in order to buy into IPOs.
2) Tell your broker you are interested in the offering and obtain a prospectus - this gives all the public details of the IPO and financial condition of the company you are investing in.
3) The broker marks you down for the number of shares you wish to buy - This is not a guarantee you will receive these shares. At this point the broker will have an estimate of how much this will cost you, but the final price you pay will not be set until the stock goes public. Make sure you have extra funds available if it is a hot IPO.
4) The IPO prices and the broker is allotted a certain number of shares - Often there are more indications of interest to buy stocks in an IPO than there are shares available for purchase. Each investor in the IPO pays the same price, so brokers must choose which of their clients will get to purchase the shares they requested. They should be fair about this, but the definition of fair can be interpretted many ways. Should the people who asked first get it? How about those that give the most repeat business? Those most likely to keep their shares and not flip them? In the IPOs I have seen, the ones appearing ready for the biggest gains often generated 20 or more times buy orders for the IPO than the number of shares available for clients.
As far as the typical dollar amount, there is generally no minimum for an IPO. IPOs are considered a higher risk purchase than what many investors buy, so consider keeping IPO investments on the conservative side. You mention looking for "the big one." If the goal is a short term first day pop in price, your initial purchase should be large enough to clear a profit after commissions if the rise you are looking for occurs.

I want you to re-read this sentence, which you wrote, at least 10 times.
No I am not kidding! Here is the sentence:
"I have, however, been using 1:25 leverage and have been setting stop-losses using all of my trading capitals value and by not being greedy, have been taking in enough profit to get 10% return on my trading capital and so far I've discovered, this actually has worked everytime I do this."
If you have something that ALWAYS works, don't change it bro!
You are 18, which is awesome age to get into Forex. You will be a millionaire in 5-10 years if you trade consistently and don't get greedy.
I generally trade with the maximum amount of leverage possible (100:1 with my broker - Alpari US).
Because I can!
Leverage is what makes your account grow really fast. You essentially get to bet with money that you don't even possess.
Sure, it's riskier, but also opens up the door for bigger profits.
It's a double-edged sword. If you get into Forex with real money, just do whatever it is you are doing now and do not deviate from it.
Simple systems are the best. Once you get rolling along you can always increase your lot size.
Just remember that you can never change your leverage though (at least not to my knowledge).

There are three things that usually contribute to a successful trade:
1. Skill and knowledge
3. Inside information.
Not necessarily in that order (probably reverse order)
Don't start believing your own mantra or anyone else's get rich quick schemes, it will end in tears. Trust me I have seen it all before!
