Shylock dreams of money bags because he is so stressed. I think he fears loosing them,

I am right loath to go.

There is some ill a-brewing towards my rest,

For I did dream of money bags tonight.

Shylock does mention a dream in Act 2 sc 5. but can you be more specific in which act and scene you are referring to?

Act 2 scene 5

This shows Shylock's greed for money. It could mean that he dremt that Antonio will get the money for the bond and shylock will not be able to kill him!?
