Minimize with operators!

10    10    10    10    1010 \;\square\; 10 \;\square\; 10 \;\square\; 10 \;\square\; 10

Fill in the squares with exactly one of each of these mathematical operators: +,,×,÷+,-,\times,\div. You are also allowed to use one (1)(1) parenthesis (  ) ( \; ) . You may choose to use it or not to use it, and if you do, you cannot use it as a multiplication operator. Example:

10+(10×10)10+(10 \times 10) is acceptable; 10(+10×10)10(+10 \times 10) is not acceptable.

Now, what is the smallest positive integer that you can get from this expression?

Note: order of operations (BODMAS) applied.
