Out of the woods? Corporate earnings point to recovery, Musk sends Dogecoin to the moon, Bank of England ahead

Whilst there has been a lot of attention on the ‘memestocks’ mania over the last week, earnings season rumbles on quietly with companies, on average, reporting profits ahead of albeit rather low expectations. Today is a busy one for corporate updates in London, and there are signs executives are a little more confident about the future.
