CERB and day trading
I have recently been laid off from my full-time employment position on late March when the pandemic hit.
I reviewed the requirements for CERB and believe that I meet all the criteria, so I started collecting it.
Because I was just idle at home, I started doing some day trading starting on May 15.
I made a little bit over $1700 profit from trading on May 15 to June 6. Assuming that this is considered self-employment income, I have obviously exceeded the $1000 margin for the CERB and have not claimed it for this period.
However from June 7 - July 4, I had a series of ups and downs. At one point I was sitting at a $2200 profit more or less, but by July 4, I walked away with around a $400 loss.
So my question is if I am eligible for collecting the CERB for the June 7 - July 4 period.
