Looking to clarify questions regarding unemployment

Looking to clarify questions regarding unemployment insurance claims in State of California:Earnings are considered to be the following:Work performedBack pay awardBonusesCommissionHolding feesHoliday payIdle time payIn-lieu-of-notice payJury duty payPaid sick leavePensionPiece work payResidual paySelf-employmentSeverance payStrike benefitsTemporary Total DisabilityTipsVacation payVocational Rehabilitation Maintenance AllowanceWitness feesWorkers' CompensationSituation: Just got unemployed but have investment activities.I trade stocks for 5 hours a week, investing $1k then gaining $2k of profit. Technically, my investment "buy-in" ($ invested, commission fees, capital gains tax, etc.) is my expenses and my profit are my earnings. However I wouldn't need to report since its not classified as a wage per the definition above since I'm not working for a company but rather using the online brokerage platform for my activities, correct?Taking the same idea but now with Airbnb.I Airbnb rent weekly an apartment that I have a yearly lease on, investing $1k per week then gaining $2k of profit. Technically, my investment "buy-in" ($ spent on week for maintenance, cleaning, lease payment, Airbnb fees, taxes, utilities, etc.) is my expenses and my profit are my earnings. However like the stocks in which I only am working 5 hours a week for Airbnb activites, I wouldn't need to report since its not classified as a wage per the definition above since I'm not working for a company but rather using the online platform service for my activities, correct?I have contacted the EDD and they provided that Airbnb is treated as employment. I don't see it as employment because unlike employment I am not being given a steady wage nor working for someone else. I see it as just the same as investing in stocks or gambling. Money spent and money gained yet you don't report that. With being employed you don't spend money to be employed therefore I understand that you need to report these earnings. But for Airbnb shouldn't it not be reported if it the same process of gaining income/earnings as the stock market or gambling which aren't required to be reported?
