Hi Pete,
I laughed when I initially read your post thinking you were being funny but then decided you weren't.
Order flew isn't a phrase I have ever heard before. Can you elaborate a little more on the meaning as I am finding, on first reading, those two sentences seem to contradict each other a little, or cover a wide range. The first talking about the past, "what traded where" (the tape/traded volume); and the second, what I think of as being the present or future. And also 'order flew' sounds like consideration of how price moves away from an area?

I think Grant covered it but...

Order Flow - the way it's moving, trading into prices, pace of the market, getting stuck at prices

Order Flew - mostly volume profile/footprint analysis - a look at what traded where/where positions are/where stops may be
