Is owning stock considered "trade or business"?



I am a non-resident alien to the US. If I set up an LLC in
the US with me as the only owner, then open an account at an
online broker under the LLC's name, and buy/sell stocks...
will the LLC be taxed as doing business in the US? Will it
have to pay any tax for that activity? Thank you very much
for you time :)
