This question already has an answer here:
I am an international student on F1 visa. Can I day trade US stocks?
As a day trader I will be placing multiple buy sell orders within a day. Is there any limit to number of orders that I can place per day?
Is there a maximum limit on dollar value of trades? Is it legal for me to trade given I'd pay my taxes due on my trading profits?
I will be trading solely for myself. Will it be considered work and hence illegal?
I know long-term investing is allowed for F1 visa holders given they are in good academic standing and their visa status is maintained. Is day trading allowed too?
