Highlighted Flow. What does it mean?

GOLDEN Sweeps.

Golden Sweeps Examples
Why is this order gold? Golden Sweeps must qualify under multiple criteria. Golden Sweeps tend to REALLY be worth paying attention to due to their large monetary value and unusually large order size in comparison to the existing open interest.
Some parameters that must be met in order to qualify as a Golden Sweep is that the orders must be multi-exchange Sweeps (meaning they entered with urgency) AND must have a minimum of $1M in Premium AND the order must have a contract quantity that exceeds the existing open interest of that contract.
