Thanks for your question. I imagine this is in part down to the FX fluctuations in GBPUSD, along with any commissions charged for executing the trade? If you do the following you can check to see what your current profit should be

number of shares purchased x (stock price now - stock price then) = profit in that currency 

then convert back into GBP. You can either do this manually using the FX price at the time on IG, or just google "xx USD in GBP"
