Is it advisable to file for H1 in current market conditions

I am currently working with IBM India. Want to work in US for a few years. I wanted to know if I apply for H1 in 2014 are there enough job oppurtunities in US?

I have a 4 year Engineering Degre and 9 years of IT experience in Manual testing.

Any advice is welcome

Right now Yes! I would say market is improving but but oyu cannot tell by Oct 2014 how the market will be.

You should upgrade your skills. Just knowing manual testing is not that helpful. You should know some automation tools as well like Selenium.
