    Hi there,

    I'm an R-1 visa holder with a SSN. But, I want to make some investments (options trading). Perhaps a few trades a month, but nothing too extreme. Not much in dollar amounts, likely under $10k

    Do you know if I'm likely to receive issues? I understand e*trade will send me a 1099 and I must report Schedule D for my profits/losses.

    I've tried googling etc, but there seems to be little/none on the subject regarding R-1. A lot out there for H1-B, but even this isn't set in stone.

    Investing is not the same as working.

    You shouldn't have any problem.

    Just make sure you report any profits/losses on your taxes.
