200 ma Confusion

My question is why is the 200 ma line different on different time frames. For example, the line will plot differently on a 1 day and 5 day. Its pretty useless to me until I can understand whats going on.

It will depend what time frame you have selected for each chart. The 200 ma line on a 1 min chart will show the 200 minute moving average whereas a 200 ma on a 1 hour chart will show the 200 hours moving average.
