Earlier in the day, the data from the US showed that Initial Jobless Claims declined by 12,000 in the week ending August 7 to 375,000 as expected. Additionally, the US Bureau of Labor Statistics reported that the Producer Price Index (PPI) rose to 7.8% in July from 7.3% in June in came in higher than analysts' estimate of 7.3%.

In the meantime, the benchmark 10-year US Treasury bond yield is up more than 2% on Thursday, helping USD/CHF stay afloat in the positive territory.
There won't be any other data releases featured in the US economic docket in the remainder of the day. On Friday, the Producer Price Index data from Switzerland and the University of Michigan's Consumer Sentiment Index data from the US will be looked upon for fresh impetus.
