In this paper, we provide a unified theoretical model to price derivatives written on VIXs with different horizons. Our theory is built on an existing concept of the instantaneous squared VIX (ISVIX) that is the sum of instantaneous diffusive and jump variances of the SPX return. Modeling the ISVIX as a mean-reverting jump diffusion process with a stochastic long-term mean, we obtain analytical formulas for VIX options and futures. Calibration with VIX options with a market-implied volatility surface shows that our model is capable of capturing efficiently complete information from the VIX derivatives market on the dynamics of the SPX.
