Can H1B people do options trading?

Recommended Posts

I am currently working as full time software engineer in some company and wanted to check whether doing day/swing trading is fine on my H1B visa?
Is it legal to do day trading, swing trading on options while on H1B visa? Seeing mixed answers on this so wanted to check what everyone thinks.
It doesn't matter how many trades you do within a day as long as you are paying taxes on them on your H1B? Correct.

I am planning to do options trading with large number of trades daily so wanted to make sure will it be fine on my H1B status.
