I am an international student in US. I just want to explore the world of stock market and trading. I am doing it by "Robinhood". I know i need to pay taxes at the end. But I am not trading very high value stocks.

So, my question is what is the limit below which I don't have to pay taxes while trading. I just invested $10. Do I have to pay taxes for this too? what are the slabs?

I am also having an assistantship. So is holding two sources of income legitimate? Thanks

Any income is subject to tax. That said, investing $10 will probably not generate much of income, even at the discount brokers most of it will be wasted on commissions...

You can have as many sources of income as you want. Working is what is restricted when you're on a student visa. As long as you don't open a business as a day trader or start working for someone trading stocks - you're fine.
