I do not wish to discuss this very much misunderstood activity of trading in social settings or with new friends I don’t know well just yet. I am looking for some kind of friendly answer that is specific and uninteresting enough not to arise any more questions. Saying i work from home doesnt solve the issue, because it is immediately followed by “what do you do” question. I don’t want to lie completely, just want to avoid the trading part. Do you have any ideas?

Just be honest, that would filter real friends from the rest.
If you need workaround just say I am doing computer business.

Just be honest about it.
If you don't want to talk about it, then simply tell them you don't want to talk about it.

If it looks too good to be true, it's probably a scam! Let the buyer beware.
