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?

😁Tell them to mind their own business in a 'friendly' way 😁 ... jokes aside, you can say you a 'risk manager'!

I just tell people I do quantitative analysis related to international finance.
If they press for more information, I simply tell them 'I don't want to talk about it.'
If it looks too good to be true, it's probably a scam! Let the buyer beware.

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