What does order flow mean to you? You ask which is better but I'm not sure I understand what specifically you are referring to. Thanks.

@Blash summarised it perfectly. One is not better than the other. That discussion is indisputable -the preference is down to the individual.
For me orderflow can be seen from 2 different perspectives:

Chart: shows origination.
Ladder: shows intent (and a few other things you dont get from a chart).

Both are orderflow. Which one works for you?
