CNBC Poll: What's the Best Place to Invest?

Surprising and volatile. That's one way to describe the financial markets in 2011.
After a series of up-and-down moves, the major stock indices ended the year pretty much where they started. Precious metals offered a wild ride as well, but only gold delivered a sizable gain.
Somehow, Treasurys managed to rally again, but with prices so high at the end of the year, it's hard to imagine any more gains.
With a year like 2011, investors may be prone to scratch their heads about 2012.
What do you think?
2011 was a volatile year for the financial markets, and many experts expect 2012 to be the same. What's an investor to do? Cast your vote.
