Whats the main items in the balance of payments capital and financial accounts?

The capital account is very small for most countries and not worth bothering about.

The financial account is composed of the balance on ss major items:

1. Foreign direct investment
2. Portfolio investment
3. Changes in international reserves

If the country has a pure floating exchange rate regime, then by definition the change in reserves each year is 0. In that case, #3 above will also be a non-item.
