What investment strategies do you recommend for someone with low capital?

What are the best ways to invest $5,000 or less? I feel as if many of the popular investment strategies (Stocks, Bonds, Options, etc.) are only profitable if invested with large amounts of money. Is this true? What are profitable ways in which someone with a low capital can get involved in investing?

I would recommend that you research global portfolio funds. Vanguard, for example, has a Vanguard Global Equity Fund (VHGEX) that invests in companies around the world within one fund. The minimum initial investment is $3,000 and it has a very low expense ratio. This type of fund gives you the opportunity for diversification with a small amount of start up.
