Will income coming out of stock trading disqualify me from getting UI benefits?

I'm going to apply for unemployment benefits. Though I'm still unemployed I do have some income coming out of my stock trading that I do mostly all days by buying and selling stocks in a few minutes every day since 2013. At the same time, I'm looking for a job since last October and I do not consider myself self-employed because of my stock trading.

Depending on how much you make, you have to report it as income, just like you would any other income and it will either reduce your benefits or completely offset, depending on the amount you make.

Thanks,
