see the attached link that describe the mispricing of the instrument BACK IN 2019.

The piece suggests an interesting point in terms of the sweet spot of where to buy. Since the price gap closes as the dividend year approaches, buying a very long dated contract means you will be waiting quite a long time for the price to converge. The author seems to suggest going just a few years out might yield the best return. Yes, you can decide when you want to close your position, but the nature of this contract is that lots of time left on the contract means the gap will still be larger the further out you are when you close it.
