WHAT: 4 out of 5 -- dream 'stockbroker' vs news event 'stock market'
dream 'on fire' vs news event 'biggest drop'

The news here is "Dow suffers biggest drop of the year, loses 334." Stockbroker on fire is metaphoric for the news event, but in this case, we do not have to grade the metaphor since the dreamer successfully interpreted the metaphor when she submitted the dream. She declared that the market would "be on fire" (i.e. rise) only to plummet later. This is exactly what happened. The market plummeted, thus 4 points (subject and verb perfect, but not really a strong descriptor for the 3rd piece, which is required for a full 5.

WHERE: 4.5 out of 5 -- This is one of those clear cases of a metaphoric location. It was a stockbroker, and the first place any typical person would think of when hearing "stockbroker" would be the New York Stock Exchange. Of course there are other exchanges, but this is the big daddy. So, since the NYSE was exactly what plummeted drastically on October 9th, 2014, we begin a full 5.0 and conduct standard metaphoric decrements. First is an automatic 0.5 for an undisclosed metaphor (the dreamer could have prevented this decrement by spelling out the New York Stock Exchange in the writeup). So, we're at 4.5 now and we have to decide whether this metaphor would be generally assumed by most people, and the answer is yes. Thus, we stop here with 4.5 points.

WHEN: 4 out of 5 -- intended Oct 7-8, actual Oct 9. The news happens within a week of the intention, thus 4 points.

Metaphors or further clarification include:
in dream, stock broker was ascending a ladder, then put on fire

event, stock market was ascending, then suffered biggest loss this year

Therefore, this dream/news combo receives the following score: 4 - 4.5 - 4
- Well done, Iris!!
