I am F-1 US Visa-holding student with an anticipated OPT authorization that is good May 9th through August 15th.

I have an opportunity to broker an investment in a manufacturing company registered in Nevada, USA. Am I eligible to claim brokerage on such an effort? Or does my F-1 visa prevent me from collecting such compensation?


It depends. OPT work should be related to your field of study and the school/USCIS should be notified. Ask your school's DSO for more info. They should have informed you about these rules during orientation.

Also note that some broker work requires a specific brokers license.
